's lead -- seven days later, and paul ryan still can't handle the truth. one week after president obama crushed the gop, congressman paul ryan returned to his day job on capitol hill today, carrying his own bags, like much of the republican party, he still seems dazed about the national rejection he took. and in an interview he told a local tv station what it felt like to lose. >> what it had become clear to us as things went on, in avirginia and ohio weren't coming together, that it looked to me some time early in the evening that it just wasn't going to happen. >> and what did that feel like for you? what -- >> it was very disappointing. we had good days, bad days. it was a great experience. i'm very fortunate to have had this experience, but losing never feels good. >> no, losing doesn't feel good. but not learning the lessons of that loss isn't good either. at his core this election was about fairness, giving, everyone a fair shot. congressman ryan doesn't -- he doesn't get it. >> was this a referendum on your budget plan, do you think? >> i don't think we lost it on those budget is
proposals to senator harry reid. the house has submitted proposals and paul ryan passed a budget. but senator harry reid, he won't consider it. and he won't encourage his senate budget committee to do anything. absolutely nothing. it's a pocket veto and stops the budget from going forward. >> in fairness to pall and all john boehner, every year the republicans have been in the majority in the house in this administration, the house has passed a budget -- both times. the senate -- the majority leader won't even bring it up. and the republicans bring up obama's budget to -- as an amendment to force the democrats' hand. but if the president leads, i happen to believe the president must be telling the democrat leader, don't do it. if the president starts telling him now, we are going to try to really get something done, i assume the democratic leader will do what the president says. >> caller: i am not here to defend why the president didn't do t. all of these budgets twould have been so simple. he's the leader of the party. if the holdup is harry reid, a democrat, couldn't he just c
paul ryan is here. we've seen members of his family but what a roller-coaster ride for his supporters, for his donors in this hall tonight. there was such a sense of defeat initially when fox news called ohio for barack obama, but then karl rove came on, started hedging, said it still was in play and people flooded the room and cheers went out handing o out american flags but as the math sunk in all that desflated and have seen children crying and a lot of hugs here tonight as they come to grips with the end of a hard-fought campaign. >> okay, bill weir, thank you very much. i want to go back to cokie roberts as jon karl was saying talking about nancy pelosi, the end of if she, indeed, does choose to retire as the democratic leader, the end of some career. >> an incredible career. she came to congress and having been told by the congresswoman who she replaced on her deathbed she said, nancy, you run for this seat and she did and, of course, rose in the ranks in the house and put together a remarkable majority for a period there and as the first female speaker, you know, you forget tha
in football. >> would it have made a difference? i always thought paul ryan was a big risk as a vp. it didn't cover any other base, any other demographic. would he have been bolder and braver, had he gone for marco rubio or condoleezza rice? somebody a bit different from paul ryan, he looked like a younger version of mitt romney? >> you know, that's second guessing and i don't know. >> the vice president won his home state. >> he's been a district guy, if you will. >> in hindsight, marco rubio may have gotten -- instead of getting 27% of the latino vote, you may have gotten 35 or 40. you still may not have made it. the facts are, we didn't make it. and we had as good a candidate as we're going to -- surely the best candidate in the field. we have a good guy, a good person. a smart guy -- >> who would you like to see in '16 of all the current candidates? >> i'll tell you -- in about 48 hours. >> who's the kind of person? >> marco rubio is an appealing guy. i think he's a centrist. he can deal with changing demographics. >> jeb bush? >> can a bush do it again? i don't know if the country's re
: half of wisconsin voters have a favorable opinion of paul ryan, it was not enough to give romney a win. he lost his home state. >> brian: that was a dominant win in wisconsin. >> steve: despite the push in pennsylvania. voters gave the 20 electoral vote to president obama. >> brian: what happened to dead heat and too close to call. pennsylvania, president obama got out in front and never let go. we have long. john roberts is with mitt romney in headquarters and phil keatings in florida, keeping phil up all night. starting with wendall. happy people? >> not much change. president has faur more year slightly larger majority in senate and republicans still control the house . two parties still have to come up with a budget deal to avoid tax hikes and spending cuts. president obama is relected with the highest unemployment rate of 7 seven.9 percent. it was held here in the mccormic center. it was still a party and a lot earlier than had feared. the president thanked romney and paul ryan for a hard fought campaign. >> i have listened to you and i are learned from you and you can made me a b
. >> the seniors point is important because paul ryan was hammered over and over again about his medicare plan but romney did well with senior as cross the board. >> we'll take a break. thank you so much, cokie, ron. when we come back, 172 electoral votes are coming in as polling places close. >> announcer: this is an abc news special, "your voice, your vote," election night 2012 live from abc news election night headquarters in times square, new york, now reporting, diane sawyer and george stephanopoulos. >> and we are back and a big crossroads, 172 electoral votes in the polls that just closed including florida and new hampshire but it is, of course, very early but i want to run through for you right now what we are ready to project, the abc news decision desk based on exit polling is ready to project that barack obama, the president, has won in illinois, of course, it's his home state, 60% of the vote last time. in massachusetts, president obama has won there, it's a solid blue state, george. >> no question about it. mitt romney's home state but did not win it and also, diane, a key senate
. the convention did not so -- to not go so great, especially clint eastwood. paul ryan was a pretty strong collect -- pretty strong selection and was a strong campaigner and pleased the conservative base. on the other hand, the challenger did not when wisconsin, so it didn't pay off and that regard. but the first debate did pay off. romney came in well prepared. for a lot of people predisposed to not like him, he came off as presidential and smart and comfortable with himself. it was obvious the president prepared for the wrong debate. he prepared for romney to take a host of positions he did not put forth in that first debate. -- he was not able to keep it in that debate that followed. three quick narrative that turned out to be true but the american public. americans want to be helpful. during america -- during an election like this, they want to be inspired and told the world can be better. this is the main reason obama was let the first time around. had it was a lot tougher the second time because we're still experiencing a downturn, but he said stick with me and we can do this together. romne
distributing vouchers -- maybe paul ryan's plan would have worked. to the hundreds of people in line. many who had been gathered since 2:00 a.m. some in the crowd began yelling obscenities. one man threatened to stab other people. he did not. now here in l.a., an exciting crowd of shoppers broke a glass door at urban outfitters in santa monica. a little bit of high-end rioting there. >> that place is so hipster. they already have windows that look like they're broken anyway. >> stephanie: that's why it is in the isn't it ironic file. eager shoppers surged in breaking the 12 foot tall door and injuring five people. the store which the "l.a. times" pointed out ironically features broken glass motifs as part of the decor. they had to treat injuries. there you are. there is your black friday stories. [ applause ] >> not a bad plan. putting up seemingly broken glass. >> stephanie: seems like you're asking for it. >> that's what you wanted. >> stephanie: planting a subliminal message. i would try to get it so quickl
by spread of 44% to 37%. paul ryan is back in the state. that is a must win for the republicans in early voting. the democrats are up there as well. obama superior organization here in the state is helping him out at this point. republican national committee has expressed concern about voting fraud here in the state. they sent a letter to the secretary of state who responded to those concerns. but over late last week, a woman was arrested here for trying to vote twice. as it turns out, she was a republican. it's no the clear who she was trying to vote for. they're making -- taking every precaution possible to assure the voters that the voting machines here are safe and that the vote will go well here. john? >> all right. thanks, miguel live on the vegas strip. now to wisconsin, where president obama holds the first of three rallies today. now wisconsin's voted blue since 1984. some of the margins are razor thin. john kerry won by 11,000 votes in 2004. al gore by less than 6,000. and the romney campaign hopes that with native son paul ryan on the ticket they can take it back. i'm joined b
. they are taking people by appointment only to turn in absentee ballots. vp candidate paul ryan's state has ten electoral vote up for grabs. ted rolands is in milwaukee. you have the democrats. they have history on their side. wisconsin hasn't voted republican in 28 years. last time was for ronald reagan. what are the campaigns doing at this late hour? can the republicans make a difference? well, suzanne, clearly, and they know it on the ground here, they do have their backs against the wall because all the latest polling does show the president with a lead. one poll, many of the, has them up by eight points. the reason they have that is scott walker, the governor here in wisconsin, you remember the recall election which just wrapped up earlier this year. well, during that recall, republicans were able to establish the ground game. when it comes to getting out the vote, their ground game here is superior to president obama's ground game, which, of course, doesn't usually translate into other states. democrats usually have a much stronger ground game. this is the largest population. as a matter
blue collar and older whites. even with paul ryan on the ticket, a 60% of seniors voted for romney. in the long run, i think those red states are problematic for democrats. look at north carolina. in north carolina or virginia, obama's numbers among blue- collar whites are unbelievably low. they are in the high-20's or 30's. in the long run, i do think there is this pattern. the sun belt will be more important than the west about. they do have the incredible ability to hang on to -- the shift will be to states that have the same social forces of rising diversity and rising education levels. >> we have a slight disagreement. obama did well among these groups in 2008. democrats do well among white blue-collar voters in the midwest. there are union presidents and other things that give them a boost. there is a slight fracture of the automobile bailout. ohio did not look that different. i think of no bailout might have helped a bit around the edges. boy, running against and john mccain in 2008, barack obama did well among those groups in those states. he did well in iowa. he overperfor

started. >> mitt romney will also visit iowa and colorado today, running mate paul ryan already wrapped up an event today in ohio. he now heads to pennsylvania, virginia and florida. we have two new nbc wall street marist polls out for you. president obama holds a 6-point lead among likely voters in ohio. 51 to 45%. then in the sunshine state the president gets support of 49% from likely voters. mitt romney coming in with 47%. let's head to mentor, ohio where the president is holding a campaign stop. we're following very closely with nbc's chris janzen's help. chris a good day to you. let's get to what the president is saying in his final pitch to the ohio voters. why is he there in mentor, specifically? >> reporter: good afternoon, alex. there is one group, one reason why the president is here. he's white work class voters. it's a group where the president has been behind nationally, having a tough time getting to 40%. but it's closette here closest . five points separated him and mitt romney in working class voters. take a look at the statistics in mentor. i know this very well. i grew u
: a small lining for congressman paul ryan. governor romney's running-mate easily winning his election. a seat he has held since 1998. still seen as a rising star within the republican party. already some speculation out there. the talk will begin as early as this morning about 2016 and who the main players are for that. here is a look at four of them on the ticket last night. bill: the president still is the president. the house, though, will be controlled by republicans and the senate controlled by democrats. charles krauthammer late last night does not expect there to be much giver on either side. he won by going very small, very negative and we are left as a country exactly where we started but a little bit worse off. what will he do? he will go back to who he is. people have said he should be a clinton and compromise on a successful second term. he's a man of the left. he will try to push his agenda through with what he thinks is a mandate. bill: he's not instinctively a moderate. ed rollins, fox news contributor. you say that typically in politics you go through cycles and you ha
to this question of the fiscal consolidation? some said that paul ryan is saying we are going to leave medicare the way it is -- >> that is more interesting than the specific transfer, because i'm not a sure that the transfer is ultimately sustainable. it makes the math work -- >> more sustainable today than -- [laughter] >> there is certainly far more interested in the broader question of the debt burden. i think it is question that all economists are worried about, this debt-to-gdp ratio and. in the generational context as well. at the people are much more aware after years of a trillion dollar deficits than they were four or five years ago -- >> it is not the generational issue, because young people voted overwhelmingly for -- >> you are basically saying, are we saying to them, you are going to have to bear the burden of all the consolidation and we are going to exempt ourselves from it, because in the right version, for example, nothing really happens for 10 years. we put more money back in for seniors. generationally, does that work? >> there is the time value of money, and if you start a
thanking his family and paul ryan. he said he gave it his all and believes in the american people. martha: election day 2012 is now in the history books. but in the battleground state of florida the race is not over. the president with 50%, governor romney with 49%. phil keating joins us live in tampa. how many votes do they believe remain to be counted in florida? >> reporter: 10s of thousands of ballots are just now beginning to be processed in six florida counties. these are absentee ballots that arrived by 7:00 p.m. last night. but as it stands right now. aside from all those people you saw waiting in super long lines at miami-dade county it was 1:00 in the morning where one woman finally made her vote count. president obama over governor romney has 46,000 vote lead out of 8.3 million ballots cast. with these absentee balance on the it seems improbable governor romney could win all of them and make up that difference. martha: as we were reporting all year florida would come down to the i4 vote and the voters there defied the polls. >> reporter: a poll came out last week showing romney
differently. there rummy and paul ryan are good man and the leaders. i want to wish them and their families well. the american people have spoken. they have reelected president obama and they have reelected the putt -- a republican majority. there is a mandate in yesterday's results and a mandate to find a way to work together on the solutions to the challenges will face as a nation. a message today is not one of confrontation but one of conviction. in the weeks and months ahead we face a series of tremendous challenges and opportunities. there is the fiscal cliff. a combination of spending cuts and tax increases mandated by law. congress will be asked to raise the nation's debt ceiling. legislation will be needed to keep the government running as a continuing resolution under which we are currently operating. amid this short-term hurdles we face the greatest challenge of all. a massive debt that is smothering growth and exceeding the entire size of our economy. there will be many who will say that we should confront the first of these challenges by letting the tax rates expire and pushing
everywhere they can throughout the state. paul ryan had a bus tour throughout ohio last weekend, about eight stops and he was campaigning through the center of ohio to touch as many people in the suburbs he possibly could. >> gretchen: i feel like i know ohio, well, having worked in cincinnati, cleveland and my husband is from columbus. >> oh, wow. >> gretchen: good to see you, erin. one station handed out free gas during the middle of the gas shortage, wait until you hear how this ends, unfortunately it wasn't pretty. we go up close with some of the neighbors hardest hit by hurricane sandy. . >> i'm jamie colby in breezy point, new york when a congressman becomes a constituent and loses had all. and are they getting it all new york congressman bob turner in his own words coming up. and a trip to the one place with the new ideas that help us pull it all together. from the things that hang and shine... ...to the things that sparkle and jingle. all while saving the things that go in our wallet. more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. trade in any light string and get up to
up. i was with mitt romney and paul ryan two nights ago in ohio, tens of thousands of people turning out. mitt romney has now been in pennsylvania, firing up crowds there. nobody thought that pennsylvania would be in play but it is now. this is a group that is fired up. we are excited. wither in the right spot at the right time. smith right candidate. the president's been struggling to bump up above 50% and i think the country fundamentally know it is off track, wants to get back on track and i think they are ready to make that change to mitt romney and paul ryan. >> if you can't beat an incumbent president when unemployment is just nearly at 8% still and the debt's risen by $5 trillion, to $16 interest pretty much a disaster for the republican party, isn't it? >> that's yes think had the country's going to make a change. you are exactly right. we have this unbelievable debt. we are paying more than $600 million a day in interest on the debt. the president promised that if he took office, he was gonna cut the deficit in half. he didn't do that he doubled the size of it. have 23 milli
quick point. one is very interesting role the paul ryan will play from this point on. paul ryan was simultaneously a loser and a winner on tuesday night. a winner because he won his house seat, a loser for the obvious reason but also for a couple of additional ones. it's kind of embarrassing when you put on the ticket and you can't carry your own state. but also his percentage and his own district went down significantly. at the same time there is no question that paul ryan, it was a national figure but far more recognized by those of us in the intellectual world and the cometary and then by others. paul, you go, could've walked through any airport outside of wisconsin or washington in america and might well have gone unnoticed. now obviously he is a significant national figure and include one in the mix for 2016. but he's in the next four that kind of conservative community that has dominated the primary and caucus process before. and going along with these kinds of compromises that include tax increases as part of a package, he comes a little trickier for him. and it also beco

, and remember when paul ryan after the 2010 elections, he was an icon for them, came back to the freshmen and said we cannot do the budget cuts we promised you right now. they threw him out of the room. they are not 6 " to be eager to do that. you can gain significant leverage by moving in that direction, and it would not surprise me that obama has a couple of cards up his sleeve to turn the bully pulpit into a more potent weapon in the next month. >> there are other ways of doing that. one is i think he will have simpson and bowles by his side on this. he has already committed to using that as the framework. there is evidence around that the white house has been working on revisions to that, giving it some specifics that would make it palatable to him and to most democrats as well, and there is also an effort to begin to pull out some major figures in the business community to be at his side. he would not go off the cliff without first having demonstrated what an agreement with book like -- would look like, and having it will support, including potentially some senate republicans with hi
-span. plenty of coverage to go. paul ryan will be in johnstown, colorado, and this afternoon. we will have live coverage at 3:35 eastern. tonight live coverage of both obama and romney in their f inal rallies. president obama is wrapping up in des moines, iowa, while mitt romney will be in new hampshire. live coverage starts at 8:00 eastern. a reminder to watch the results in presidential, house, senate, and governors races across the country. victory and concession speeches from candidates, plus your reaction to route the night, and it begins at 8:00 eastern tomorrow night on c-span, c-span radio, and c-span.org c- span.org. >> when you have the infrastructure, there are quality vulnerabilities to natural disasters. in terms of the fcc's engagement, the chairman spent the night at the agency. our public safety person to the state. we are working on firsthand with fema to make an overall assessment in terms of those initial numbers. of 25% of cell towers were disabled during this process. what the fcc does and will continue to do is to work with these entities to assess the situation on the gro
. >> the home state of paul ryan, the vice presidential nominee on the republican side so it's a blow for the republicans. >> it came into play when he was the nominee and it means absolutely... i think it means absolutely romney has to carry ohio. if he didn't carry ohio he could get through the 270 through wisconsin and colorado. if he doesn't have wisconsin, that makes ohio even more important for him. >> yes, even though wisconsin has been consistently democratic it was carried by 5,000 votes by al gore and 10,000 votes by john kerry. i mean it was very, very close. so this is a real plus for the obama folks and a real roadblock because in view of scott walker's emergence and dominance of that state as the governor not simply winning the governorship but then beating back the recall efforts so effectively as he did... >> ifill: remember when we were at the republican national convention the most popular people in the room, the most population delegation, reince priebus beings every time the name wisconsin came up because of the scott walker moment beating back the democratic union
eastwood episode. did not change a lot of minds. the selection of paul ryan was a pretty strong selection. he turned out to be a very strong campaigner. i think he certainly please the conservative base. on the other hand, the challenger did not win wisconsin so didn't pay off in that regard. but the first debate absolutely did pay off. romney came in very well prepared for a lot of people who predisposed to not like him, he came off as presidential, very smart, very comfortable with himself, and clearly it was obvious that the president had prepared for the wrong debate. he clearly had prepared for romney to take a host of positions that he did not push forward in that first debate. romney had his chance for a comeback. he just was not able to keep it going in the debates that followed. now, three quick and narratives that turned out to be true about the american public. one is a think americans want to be hopeful. during an election like this, they want to be inspired to want to be told the world can be better. this is the main reason obama was elected the first time around. it was a lo
paul ryan for all that he has done for our campaign. and for our country. besides my wife, ann, paul is the best choice i've ever made. and i trust that his intellect and his hard work and his commitment to principle will continue to contribute to the good of our nation. >> i want to thank my friend and partner of the last four years, america's happy warrior, the best vice president anybody could ever hope for, joe biden! >> all right. welcome back. 29 past the hour. a special post-election edition of "morning joe" live from studio 8h in rockefeller center. >> by the way, look who's here. this is huge. >> joining nous, nbc chief foreign affairs, andrea mitchell. political analyst and former chairman of the republican national committee, michael steele. and msnbc political analyst and visiting professor at nyu, former democratic congressman harold ford jr. and host of "mad money" on cnbc, jim cramer. >> and by the way, andrea mitchell, thank you guys for coming. andrea mitchell came up to me, mika, spoken like a true lawyer, she said, i believe that for you to grow your mustache, the

consolidation text some people said it lowers the bird and others say that paul ryan is saying we will leave medicare the way it is but one younger people get there, it will be different theme that question is more interesting. >> i'm not sure it is sustainable >> it is more sustainable today than it was. >> there is certainly far more interest today in the broader question of the debt burden. does a question that all economists are worried about, debt to gdp ratio, in terms of a backer question. but then in the generational context as well. people are more interested in the devils of than they were for five years ago. >> it is not just generational because young people voted for the president overwhelmingly. >> clearly, the interest in young people not being left with this dead end on the other hand, you will have to bear the burden of all the consolidation -- none of these changes in the ryan version nothing happens for 10 years and we put more money back again. by the time you get there, it will be a different program. how does that work? >> there is a time value of money. if you start a
